readers of this blog will know that many of my posts involve keeping traditions going. i love how keeping favorite events or activities going on year after year, give a sort of rhythm to your life. it provides a structure for memories in a way. now i'm in no way oppose to new experiences, but i like a few favorites dotted in throughout the year.
one of those is the opening of "portland lobster company." besides a couple of years during covid, i believe ive been at every opening day for the past 7 years. it's a sign that spring is finally here. a time to put that winter coat away and emjoy patios again. this year was to be no different. there was one big item that i had going on in my life, so this year's opening day consisted of just one beer on the patio.
but it still counts!
